What's the problem? Please take a look on following picture:

As you can see Places and Hibernate buttons overlap each other. Is is common bug? How to solve that? Is there any way to increase width of menu luncher ?
Also I'd like to see 6 or 7 icons in a one row in favourite apps instead of current 4. How to achieve that?
Best regards

Looks like latte-dock is still installed in your system. Check our wiki entry for info how to migrate away from latte-dock successfully, as that looks like that is causing your issues. Dr460nized migration info | Garuda Linux wiki

The favorites menu is resizable in Plasma. (drag the outside edge)


That's correct. I still have latte-dock. Is it mandatory to upgrade?

Unfortunatellty in my system it isn't that obviouse. I don't have any option to resize any edge by druging out.

The migration is not mandatory, but latte-dock is not supported anymore. So, if you are having GUI issues like that with latte-dock, the best course of action is to do the migration. Once you do, you will be able to resize the favorites panel as you will be using just Plasma instead.


Thanks Kayo. I'm going to upgrade it.

It's a very interesting issue, plz report back whether the upgrade to Plasma Panels fixes this issue or not.

Here you have it:

So yes - defenitelly it works! Thank you guys.
Issue to be closed.


AWESOME!! :smiley:
We didn't know Latte could have this impact, but that's another good reason why Garuda migrated away from Latte.
And it's resizable too!

Tnx a lot for reporting this, very appreciated!


If I have to take a guess FGD, it was because of restrictiveness of latte's launcher size, and the user's selected language.
That, and probably the changes to the launcher panel on Plasma's side (so the calls that Latte was doing with the new Plasma Application Launcher was causing issues). Notice the space between Places and Sleep; those are disjointed and aligned to the left and right.
